I got this..!!!!!
I used Opera for a while the most under rated browser in the market...
If it was more compatible I would use it only.
The I started using Firefox because all the things I loved about opera could be added as extensions.
I will not use a browser that does not have them...For example I wanted to use chrome but couldn't because of the missing addons.
So I use.... Firefox with adblockplus, Speeddial, SecureLogin and SQLLite manager...
I can go to all my normal websites and check my emails with about 15 keys pressed on my keyboard and never touching my mouse.
It's officially SL3 but it's actually kind of a cross between SL3 and SL4 pre-RTM, and one major thing that's absent is commanding support for buttons and such (which they did add in SL4). It's not there at all. Period!
You can roll your own commanding and that works perfectly fine for ExecuteXXX() methods. But it will not automatically work for CanExecuteXXX() methods because there's no CommandManager. You can hack around this by manually raising the CanExecuteChanged event every time you change something that you think should affect the UI layout (in WPF this is automatically handled by the CommandManager). There are a few 3rd party offerings that work around this but if you don't want to go the 3rd party route then things are not very appealing!
The best thing about Windows Phone 7 is its performance. I think they did take a good decision by making it not bloated. All these things add a little bloat and by no means are show stoppers.
Agree, but eventually people will roll out their own which will result in multiple versions of the same thing.

I am unhappy that there is no native API yet.
Yeah, and even if they eventually make that public, I wonder if they allow native interop. I mean it probably won't make sense to write the UI in native code, so people would probably want to write UI in SL/XNA and then interop with native code for some background stuff.
I was just drooling over the possible configurations you can get with an iMac... 16GB of RAM, an SSD, a quad-core, and so on. I just need to have a first-born child to sell so I can afford an iMac.
I also noticed part of the configurator allows you to add on a printer to the bundle. That got me to thinking, wouldn't it be nice if the printer was integrated into the iMac, just like the screen is? Heck, the screen could be used as a scanner too. I wonder if we'll ever see that.
Wow, drooling over an Apple product and coming up with silly ideas for features. I think I'm going to the dark side. Save me before it's too late!
Most PC's don't require you to throw your monitor away every time you upgrade the rest of your system. Over the last decade I've had a half dozen primary computers; and am still using 3 of the 5 monitors I've had over that time period. The only 2 that were junked were both CRTs.
If I were concerned about junking materials or money, I wouldn't be drooling over an iMac, would I? Laptops have that same flaw (heck, they make you throw away your keyboard and mouse too), yet people keep buying them for some reason.
Though, I wonder if the iMac has an input for the screen... that way, my next PC could actually make use of the screen.
Long ago (10+ years) PowerBooks could be used as a secondary monitor to another Mac; they determined the direction of the video connection at start-up, and when an input they just didn't boot the OS. I don't know how it evolved since then.
